The cross looks like its cut Glam Ribbon, and the flowers look like Peonies maybe? Try searching for tutorials on Sugar peonies....
AOk thnak you so much I really appreciate it!
AThe flowers look like ranunculus to me. Peonies are more frilly.
It never ceases to amaze me that someone wants to know *exactly* what flower, technique, etc is found in a picture so they can duplicate it.
Is it really *that* important? The flowers on top don't look to me like either peonies nor a ranunculus. Ranunculus are much more flat; peonies can be more frilly but it doesn't matter so much.
I's say they are an old fashion rose.
Sooooooo now OP you have a choice. Will the client really know the difference? No matter which one you choose, the cake will be very pretty.
As for the cross I say it's a non-edible piece of jewelry: try using degrees(sp?) or just pipe dots or stars with a small tip and you will have the same look but it will be *your* creation and I'm sure pretty enough to please your client!
AThe reason why I was asking what kind of flower it was is because I wanted a tutorial to show me how to get started with it...but thank you for your advice what you said is very true!!!
vianery good luck. I hope you will let us know what you choose - a pic of the finished cake would be great :)
AYea I will post a pic when I get finished with it thanks!!!
Kinda looks like a mashup of ranunculus and tulips...many petals like ranunculus, but longer petals like tulips
As with all flowers there are many different varieties. The ones I grew in my garden were not like those shown in the tutorial - they were much flatter with many, many layers of petals - oh well guess she can do whatever she wants.
Lucky! I wish I could grow ranunculus here, but it's way too hot...I miss our non-tropical plants!
